How We Lead: Canada in a Century of Change

How We Lead: Canada in a Century of Change Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A passionate argument for Canada's reassertion of its place on the world stage, from a former prime minister and one of Canada's most respected political figures.

     In the world that is taking shape, Canada's unique success as a diverse society and its reputation as a sympathetic and respected international partner are invaluable assets--at least as valuable as the country's natural resource wealth. As the world becomes more competitive and complex, and the chances of deadly conflict grow, the example and the initiative of Canada can become more important than ever. However, its assets will lose their value if Canadians don't recognize or use them, or worse, if they waste them.

     How We Lead is a compelling examination of what kind of a nation Canada has been, has become and could yet be. A successful foreign minister himself during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of Apartheid, Joe Clark employs anecdote and analysis to take readers beyond formal foreign policy and shows how innovative organizations and individuals can put Canada's unique combination of assets to work and renew Canada's constructive influence on international events.

Synopsis:

JOE CLARK was elected in 1979 as Canada's sixteenth and youngest prime minister. During the Mulroney government, he served as minister of external affairs from 1984 to 1991 and as president of the Privy Council and minister responsible for constitutional affairs from 1991 to 1993. After several years away from public life he was elected again to the House of Commons in 2000, where he represented Calgary Centre until leaving politics in 2004. He now works as a political and business consultant in Ottawa, where he lives with his wife, Maureen McTeer.

Synopsis:

The Rt. Hon. Joe CLARK, P.C., C.C. served as a federal Member of Parliament  for twenty-five years and held the most senior Cabinet positions, including those of Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, Minister of Constitutional Affairs and President of the Privy Council. Mr. Clark continues to work with international foundations, associations and businesses on issues of governance, democratic reform, security and peace. He lives in Ottawa with his wife, Maureen McTeer.
